Task Force to Recommend Boundaries for New Southwest Middle School

(September 26,  2002) Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) has announced he process for developing home school boundaries for three new schools opening in 2003. One of these is the southwest middle school, currently under construction on Steele Creek Road.

A Student Assignment Parent Task Force (SAPTF) will be developed to advise the Superintendent and assist CMS staff with developing proposed home school boundaries for them. The principal of each school impacted by the new school will select three representatives to serve on the task force. The group will meet from October 28 through November 15, and will make a recommendation to the board on November 26. The School Board hopes to vote on the boundaries at its December 10 meeting, in time for families to file applications for next year's attendance.

The task forces will hold open public meetings, which will take the place of public hearings.

Other schools that may be impacted by the new southwest middle school boundaries are Kennedy Middle, Quail Hollow Middle, Lake Wylie Elementary, Steele Creek Elementary, and Nations Ford Elementary.

To find out more about the process for developing school boundaries and the task force, view the presentation to the Board of Education on September 24 HERE, or contact your local school.
